And so it begins...

I am hopelessly out of date since I am starting my blog about seven years too late to be on the forefront of technology, but I was inspired to do so after reading a book concerning the history of municipal trash disposal. I was pretty disheartened that plastics (or as we fancy folk call them, polymers) get such bad press when they have enabled so many technological developments that have improved our quality of life, particularly in health care. This blog will profile some developments/products/technologies that have resulted from polymer materials science and explore ways that we can use and dispose of polymers more responsibly.
